Gender, both in how we identitfy ourselves, and express it, is as wide and colourful as a rainbow. While many identify with the gender they were assigned at birth, not everyone does. They may identify with another gender, or both, or neither.
At Rosedale UC, we strive to respect the pronouns that everyone uses. Some are "he," others are "she," and others still are "they." It may take practice, but using a person's preferred pronouns can be an easy and effective way of affirming their identity and including them in the church at large.
"This is their phone, I should return it to them."
"They are leading the children downstairs for the Children's Lesson."
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our ministry team.
